The IRS’s ‘Dirty Dozen’ are Getting Old    

So opines Gail Perry at AccountingWeb:

 I for one am getting pretty bored with the tax scams on this list – they hardly change at all from year to year. It’s time for some creative criminals out there to come up with something new.

From the comments section:

My brother ran a Schedule C Anvil Repair Shop from his garage in order to claim home office deduction, depreciation, etc. He told me the freight bills were a killer. 🙂

Could it be that the criminals continue to be creative, but the IRS investigators and auditors are trained to look for the old scams so they are not discovering the new ones? The creativity of the self-interested criminal is generally far ahead of the salaried regulator. Look at Wall Street.
